Disaster Response Warehouse

North Georgia Conference Disaster Response Warehouse
at Impact UMC in East Point


The Conference Disaster Response Warehouse is a central location for collection and distribution of UMCOR Disaster Relief Kits. Kits are deployed to areas of greatest need as disaster strikes. The warehouse is open by appointment to volunteer groups of 8 or fewer. Churches delivering Cleaning Buckets should make an appointment in advance with the warehouse manager and bring no more than 8 volunteers to unload the delivery.

Masks are mandatory and must be worn throughout time volunteering and practice social distancing. 

To make an appointment, email Dr. Stephen Redmond at warehouse@ngumc.org or Rev. Matt Murphy at matt.murphy@ngumc.net. 
 

Volunteer at the Warehouse

The Disaster Response Warehouse is in need of volunteers to replenish n95 masks that were removed from Cleaning Buckets in March and to prepare them to be deployed to disaster sites. Please make an appointment for your group of 8 or fewer to volunteer at the Warehouse. To schedule a time to serve, email Dr. Stephen Redmond at warehouse@ngumc.org.

Relief Supply Kits 

One of our best ways to respond in disaster is by providing appropriate relief kits. We collect UMCOR:

Check with the warehouse BEFORE your church builds kits, as needs change due to demand. Find instructions for assembling UMCOR relief kits at www.umcor.org/UMCOR/Relief-Supplies

Updates from the Warehouse


Disaster Response Warehouse Deploys N95 Masks

Disaster Response ministries across our Conference stand ready to serve in times of need, and the COVID-19 pandemic is no exception. 

In March 2020, the North Georgia Conference deployed 2,500 N95 masks from our Disaster Response Warehouse to GEMA (Georgia Emergency Management Agency). GEMA delivered them to regional hospitals for staff responding to the COVID-19 virus. 

The masks are used by Early Response Teams and homeowners to provide protection from dust, mold, and toxins as they muck out homes after a hurricane or flood or cleaning up after a tornado. UMCOR Cleaning Buckets (flood buckets) each have five N95 particulate respirator masks. 

Disaster Response Warehouse Manager Rev. Dr. Stephen Redmond and Rev. Matt Murphy and a few volunteers spent days gathering the masks, many of which were in sealed buckets, and delivering them to GEMA. 

Lovejoy's Pledge

Lovejoy UMC in the Griffin District pledged to volunteer 30 hours at the Disaster Response Warehouse next year! They presented Stephen Redmond with a "big check" to let him know to count on the church for their time and service in 2020. They encourage other congregations to join them!

We are grateful for churches and individuals who financially support the NGA Disaster Response Warehouse through NGUMC Advance #7510.
